SUNDAY, MAY 27

SCSO:  SULIMAN PLAYS TCHAIKOVSKY THIS SUNDAY

The Space Coast Symphony Orchestra will conclude its ninth season with a program featuring Tchaikovsky’s powerful violin concerto, by one of the orchestra’s favorite guest artists: violinist Suliman Tekalli.  Suliman Plays Tchaikovsky will be presented at 3:00 pm on Sunday, May 27 at the Vero Beach High School Performing Arts Center.  The SCSO concert will start with Atlantic Riband by composer Ken Fuchs, evoking the struggle and ultimate victory of ocean-crossing immigrants to America in an orchestral showpiece.  Superstar violinist Suliman Tekalli returns to Florida to perform Tchaikovsky’s masterful Violin Concerto in D major, written in 1878 and one of the best known violin concertos in the repertoire.  Top prize winner of the 2015 Seoul International Competition, Suliman performs on a 1683 Stradivarius violin on loan through the Stradivari Society. Suliman Plays Tchaikovsky closes with Shostakovich’s stirring Symphony No. 5.  As required by Soviet era standards, the work displays lyricism, a heroic tone and inspiration from Russian literature.  With an unmistakable undertone of sadness, however, the symphony conveys an indomitable spirit and remains Shostakovich’s most popular.  $20 advance tickets for adults are available through the orchestra website atwww.SpaceCoastSymphony.org or at the beachside and mainland branches of Marine Bank & Trust. Tickets at the door are $25.  Suliman Plays Tchaikovsky is free for those aged 18 and under or with a student ID.
